Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo has admitted that his side’s home form is it’s weakness ahead of Wednesday night’s Championship clash against Leeds United at Molineux.
Leeds travel to the West Midlands off the back of a brilliant 2-1 win against Middlesbrough on Sunday, but will face an altogether different kind of test in their midweek game against table-toppers Wolves.
Although Nuno believes that home form is a weakness for his side, Wanderers have won six of their eight league games at Molineux this term, a record that is only bettered by Cardiff and Sheffield United.
His side’s away form has been thoroughly impressive though, winning six times in nine trips on the road, better than any club in the second-tier.
Thomas Christiansen’s Leeds may want to take that knowledge on board ahead of the game, but have won just four of their eight away trips.
On Wednesday though, Nuno is hoping that his sides’ fortunes can improve against the resurgent Whites.
“I think in terms of performances we’ve been doing quite well away from home,” he said, as quoted by the Express and Star.
“(But) there were a couple of games at Molineux where we could and should do better. Everything together, we have to improve.
“We’ll go for it in this cycle we have at home, looking for better performances.”
Leeds will no doubt try to expose that weakness on Wednesday.
United are currently ninth in the Championship standings and would move as high as sixth if they achieve an unexpected win at Molineux.
